As the North Korean leader prepared for his meeting with US President Donald Trump, it appeared he had increased security which included taking his personal toilet on the flight.
According to the South Korean news website Chosun, Kim arrived in Singapore with his bullet-proof limousine and a portable toilet, a measure which is designed to prevent anyone analyzing his stools.
Kim apparently takes a portable toilet with him everywhere he goes, preferring not to use public restrooms.
Lee Yun-keol, who worked in a North Korean Guard Command unit before defecting to South Korea in 2005 told the Washington Post: “Rather than using a public restroom, the leader of North Korea has a personal toilet that follows him around when he travels.”
He continued: “The leader’s excretions contain information about his health status so they can’t be left behind.”
The North Korean leader has previously drawn attention for his extreme security measures.
In April, bizarre footage emerged of 12 smartly dressed bodyguards running alongside Kim’s limousine as he left a meeting with South Korean leader Moon Jae-in.
Kim’s bodyguards were also spotted running alongside the car after he arrived in Singapore.
The smartly dressed men were pictured alongside Kim’s vehicle as it made its way to his hotel in Singapore on Sunday.
Kim arrived in the country with a huge security presence including two decoy flights.
Armed police are guarding the St Regis Hotel on the island of Sentosa where he is staying.
The meeting will be the first time a sitting US President has met with a North Korea leader. It is also Kim’s longest overseas visit as a leader.
Mr. Trump has described the summit as a “one-time shot” at peace and told reporters during the G7 summit in Canada that he would “know within a minute” if the summit would be successful.
He has raised the possibility of further summits and an agreement on ending the Korean War by replacing the armistice signed in 1953 with a peace treaty.
China and South Korea would have to sign off on any legal treaty.
North Korea has said it is willing to deal away its entire nuclear arsenal if the United States provides it with a reliable security assurance and other benefits.
